Today is the day of snacks. The problem is that I don’t have enough of them.
I wanna eat my way through the day and I just don’t have the resources.
Help me out here!
Bring me snacks. Lots of them. Share yours. Bring your favorites.
Until each and every one of you have stopped by to drop off your favorite snack to share with me (I will share with you too), I will consider YOU a failure. And this whole day too.
Can you fix your failure and remedy this situation, an insatiable need for snacks?
Working from home has created some issues…
The pantry is taunting me.
Like, seriously, it yells my name EVERY DAY and it wants me to constantly visit with it. Like I mean, it wants to snuggle and stuff. It’s weird, I know, but I can’t explain it any other way.
I try not to listen. I turn the music up. I have meetings. I blindfold myself.
But it is persistent.
It has scrumptious treats. They are salty. They are crunchy. They are sweet. They are spicy…
Resistance is nearly futile. I can’t escape it.
It calls me when I am working. It calls me when I am sleeping. It calls me when I am on the couch. It calls me even when I am out in the yard (it just yells louder…)
I have tried disconnecting my number but it still manages a way to get in touch.
It’s irritating really. But, oh so enticing too…
Did you hear that? It’s calling again. I’ll go see what it wants now. If I am not back in 10 minutes, leave me alone. We’re snuggling again.
This “stay at home” order is killing me. Well, actually it may end up killing others in the house…
KEEP YOUR HANDS OFF MY SNACKS!
Little people. Adults. Adults in charge of little people. I don’t care. These are mine and I don’t want you touching them or eating them or moving them or anything else.
I know what you are thinking. “He still has snacks left?”
That’s a fair question.
I had a personal stash that I didn’t tell anyone about. But someone caught me hunkered down in a corner eating a tasty morsel and the curiosity began…
Thus, my own little pot-o-gold for times of telecommuting in the garage has been sniffed out. Honestly, the stash was getting a little thin after two weeks of telecommuting and I am not sure how I could sneak more into the house…leaving the house is suspicious, for obvious reasons, and if I return and skulk back into the garage carrying grocery bags it is going to be even more suspicious.
This whole event has caused me to view the eating habits of a few people in the house and can say that I don’t like it. The munching, the crunching, the gobbling, the face stuffing, the pie-hole gorging are starting to irritate me. Do I really need to feed all these people? Who can I vote off the island? Who can I sacrifice and live without?
Anyone else feel like Gollum from “The Hobbit” and “The Lord of the Rings” when it comes to their snacks?
